Homemade Chorizo

Have you ever had chorizo?  If you have, then you may have wondered when you were eating it… what exactly is in here?  Well, have no fear, friends.  Now you can make your own.
My hubby loves chorizo but it’s usually too spicy.. or suspicious..so we never buy it.
I think this has just the right amount of heat, but you can of course add more chili powder if you disagree.  I use chorizo for tacos, stuffing empanadas, burritos.. or if I leave it on the counter and walk away my hubby will take care of it with a spoon. : )

1 lb ground pork
2 tsp garlic powder
1 T smoked paprika
2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 T white vinegar

Mix dry spices into meat until well mixed, then add vinegar and mix just until combined.

Cook in a skillet over medium high heat, breaking up with a wooden spoon as it cooks.  I like to cook the chorizo with a diced white onion.  I add the onion when the meat is about halfway done.
